• Pomona Crash

    POMONA (CNS) – A suspected drunken motorist suffered major injuries
    during a four-vehicle crash today on the San Bernardino (10) Freeway in Pomona,
    where at least two cars caught fire, the California Highway Patrol said.
    The crash on the westbound freeway, east of Towne Avenue, was reported
    to the CHP at 12:30 a.m., according to a department statement.
    Juan Miguel, a 21-year-old Pomona resident, was speeding in a 2007 Ford
    F-250 pickup truck, CHP reports said. He allowed his vehicle to veer into the
    number two lane, where it sideswiped a 2006 BMI 330i, driven by a 38-year-old
    Santa Monica man, according to the statement.
    The impact caused the driver of the BMV to lose control his car.
    Miguel’s truck continued toward the right shoulder of the freeway, where the
    right front of the pickup truck struck the sound wall.
    Miguel’s truck then bounced back into the lanes of traffic, where it
    then struck the right side of a 2001 Daewoo Laganza driven by a 42-year-old
    Claremont woman. The Claremont woman was able to maintain control of her car,
    but Miguel’s pickup truck went across the lanes and rear ended a 2010 Infiniti
    G-35 that was driven by a 58-year-old Signal Hill man.
    That final collision caused Miguel to smash into the center divider wall
    and overturn.
    Miguel, who was not wearing his seatbelts, was partially ejected, as his
    vehicle caught fire — which then ignited the Infinity, which had crashed
    into the wrecked truck. Both motorists were able to get out of their burning
    Miguel was airlifted to Los Angeles County/USC Medical Center with head
    injuries. Paramedics rushed the 58-year-old Signal Hill man in the Infinity to
    the same hospital with minor injuries.
    “Mr. Miguel  is being investigated for driving under the influence of
    alcohol and the collision remains to be under investigation,” read a
    department statement.
